Ready for Teddy
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
Robbie Keane described Teddy Sheringham as a 'pleasure to play alongside' ahead of our reunion with the former skipper at Fratton Park on Boxing Day.
Teddy departed for Portsmouth in the summer after a two-season second spell at the club and Robbie was quick to praise the impact the veteran striker had on his own game.
"Teddy was a pleasure to play alongside, he's a tremendous player and, the experience he's got and the voice he brings to events was very helpful to me," said Robbie.
"It will be nice to see Teddy but I just hope he doesn't put one past us."
After a bright beginning to the season, Pompey have slipped back of late - without a win in six - and are now in the bottom three. Robbie suspects the lull won't last and points out that most teams have encountered a dip in form.
"Yes they have, but everyone goes on a little run where they can't get a win and Portsmouth are on one at the moment. It's been the same for us in the last week.
"It's going to be a tough game, they work hard for each other. Harry Redknapp is a tremendous manager and he'll have the team right up for it - it's up to us, after a bad week, to go there and hopefully get the three points.
Please note that there will be no Spurs News Online this Friday - Boxing Day - and the online bulletin will resume next week.
